Me and my low dps ; )

2 posts in this topic



My dps is not the worst I guess, but I feel like it could be better than that.


I dont have any specific boss, on which i'm underperforming. I understand that I wont do better then affi on for example councile but this 70-80k that i'm doing right now is kinda low. (?) There is no many logs with my current ilvl, but I think this is enought data to analyze:


About my rotation:

 Battle start: 2x confla, and inci until I hit 3 embers (in this moment first ring and prepot are still ON), then dark soul and spam of Chaos bolt.


then normal rotation:

 - keep Immo up

 - Confla, 

 - Chaos bolt on 3+ embers

 - Dark soul when 2 charges, spam Chaos bolt, and keepeing 1 charge for ring/bl

 - when 2 targets trying to use Havoc every cd with Chaos bolt

 - Doomguard od BL


This is pretty much it. 


So, any ideas? ; >

Take off Dark Soul glyph, it's useless outside of hellfire assault. You want to sync 20sec DS with ring every time, that's part of the reason why your opener and consequent DS/ring cycles are so weak. You never cast unending resolve, might want to consider using eternal resolve glyph.


Your havoc uptime is extremely low. The other two warlocks cast havoc almost four times as much. Managing to split CB on important targets or sniping shadowburns plays a huge part in ember management. You only cast havoc once in the last phase and didn't even touch infernals once, why even play destruction if you're going to ignore adds?


The difference in damage between SB and CB is fairly large. As a rule of thumb shadowburn is only to be used on adds that will generate embers upon death, thus you never want to cast it on the boss sub-20% if you know your CB can land.


Lastly, try to utilize your movement abilities more. If you're going down to the nether with the tank, replace your portal nearby so you can get out of the swirly green shit as soon as you're up. You can reposition your circle as many times as you need to, think for instance running between doomfire marks or breaking chains. When you're soaking mannoroth's gazes you can instantly port back to the stacking marker etc.

      Nothing To Lose is recruiting exceptional players for Mythic Emerald Nightmare and Legion progression.
      Raid times are 7-11pm Central Standard Time on Wednesday and Friday nights.

      We are mainly interested in Ranged DPS at the moment, however
      we are always willing to accept talented and experienced raiders.
      The following classes would be highly preferred:
      -Mage (Fire)
      -Priest (Shadow)
      -Druid (Balance)

      For Mythic content, we expect our raiders to be consistent both in their attendance and performance. We are a generally laid back and sarcastic crowd, but our 20 spots will be filled by those who:
      -Show up on time with full consumables
      -Know the ins and outs of their class
      -Know the boss mechanics 
      -Push their numbers to highest possible in their spec.

      <NTL> has been on Cho'Gall since the Burning Crusade, and we intend to be around through Legion and beyond. Join us for some !@#$-talking, meter-whoring, and good old-fashioned purps.

      The easiest way to apply is to contact myself (GM) directly via PM or in-game mail.
